Ibanez Steve Vai Signature Passion & Warfare  ...Ibanez – Ibanez Steve Vai Signature Passion & Warfare 25Th Anniversary Limited Edition 7-String Electric Guitar Warfare Orange/Yellow
2015 marked the 25th anniversary of the release of Steve Vais landmark solo album, Passion & Warfare. Critically acclaimed and publicly celebrated for its unique artistic vision and sheer musical muscle, Passion & Warfare is now considered the milestone that marks the arrival of the 7-string solid body electric guitar.The Universe, as Steve dubbed it, was showcased prominently on Passion & Warfare, and opened the door for guitarists of every musical background to expand their artistic horizons. Initially adopted by like minded guitar virtuosos, Steves vision of a new musical landscape took a turn that perhaps even he hadnt anticipated when, in the hands of Korn and other purveyors of 90s new metal, the 7-string became mandatory equipment for anyone engaging in the genre.Since that time, Steve, along with countless other 7-string enthusiasts have continued to incorporate the Universe into a myriad of musical settings that have both inspired and challenged the world.In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Passion & Warfare, Steve Vai and Ibanez are proud to offer three very special limited edition guitars. Using the same colorful swirled patterning associated with the original Universe, they here present Passion & Warfare. These handcrafted guitars draw on the color schemes present in the original album artwork, depicting the ravages of a war-torn hell juxtaposed against a nirvana-like state of passion for life and for love. The third in this series of celebratory editions looks to the traditional role silver plays in observance of a 25th anniversary, marrying it with a design reminiscent of Steves custom 7-string, used when touring with Whitesnake, immediately following the release of Passion & Warfare.77 pieces of each of these three editions have been made available to the public for purchase.Pickup switching systemPosition 1: bridge pickup (humbucking)Body Body shape: Double cutaway Body type: Solid body Body material: Solid wood Top wood: Not applicable Body wood: Basswood Body finish: Gloss Orientation: Right handed Neck Neck shape: UV77 Neck wood: Maple/bubinga 5-piece Joint: Bolt-on Scale length: 25.5″ Truss rod: Standard Neck finish: Gloss Fretboard Material: Rosewood Radius: 16″ Fret size: Jumbo Number of frets: 24 Inlays: Custom Nut width: 1.89″ (48mm) Pickups Configuration: HSH Neck: Blaze Middle: Blaze Bridge: Blaze Brand: DiMarzio Active or passive pickups: Passive Series or parallel: Series Piezo: No Active EQ: No Special electronics: None Controls Control layout: Master volume, tone Pickup switch: 5-way Coil tap or split: No Kill switch: No Hardware Bridge type: Tremolo/Vibrato B
